ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) During a press conference from on board the International Space Station, U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly on Thursday compared his nearly year-long mission to being "in the woods camping for a year" because of the lack of running water and cramped living conditions. But he added that the station is a "magical place" and a journey that he believes more people will be able to take in time. Kelly and cosmonaut Mikhail Kornienko have spent an unprecedented 340 days on the station during what is Kelly's fourth trip to space. Kelly said he hope the information that he can provide will help scientists in planning a mission to Mars.
